Reviewer: Darrylizer - - April 26, 2008
Subject: An odd mix and an old setlist
With a setlist that could have been lifted from 1972 (at least the first set) this show just doesn't offer much in the way of innovation. Jerry's really playing well as is Brent, Bobby however is missing from much of the proceedings which seems to be a problem with the really odd and unbalanced mix. Bob is much too low and Brent is at times much too prominent. It doesn't make for a unified listening experience which is regrettable as the playing isn't bad at all even if the setlist is somewhat routine. China Cat , Space and Playing are highlights, very nice.

Subject: Fun one for sure
I really dig the quarky nature of this show. The intro to Women Smarter is as funky as all get out.
Reviewer: smgarcia - - June 26, 2006
Subject: Hi
The early 80's was the beginning of the time that the Dead would play three different sets, three different nights at one location. It's evident here..I think there are only two repeat songs from this Warfield Run (My Brother Esau, new in 1983 and Little Red Rooster.)

While the Dead did like to vary what songs they played night in and night out, it started becoming more mechanical in the early 80's. It's the beginning of the end of the long, winding, exploratory music they perfected in the 70's.

Subject: excellent moments
good recording but i like more audience. once in a while you can hear some guy yelling. first set is pretty ordinary but china cat is good. second set jams, especially both playin' in the bands. excellent drums (space) and into women are smarter.

Subject: Is Bob baked?
Until Minglewood he is flubbing lyrics and missing cues - The M'wood is hot though - one of the best of the year China>Rider as well. 11 song first set. 20 min Playin rocks and is a prelude to an equally hot version at Byrne a week or so later.

5 star for the jam into and out of Women. Real good sound too.
